Business Network Firewall Security

Wed April 20th 2016

Your business network may be suffering undue load because of system misuse. This could be caused by computers that are not running at peak performance, or because of staff that are logging on for non-work related activities.

Your business network may be suffering undue load because of system misuse. This could be caused by computers that are not running at peak performance, or because of staff that are logging on for non-work related activities. When staff are visiting websites and using online services for personal reasons, they open up your network to an additional burden of traffic that not only puts stress on the system, but also hinders productivity. This loss can be easily managed with a good IT support system that includes a firewall setup to control incoming and outgoing traffic, limiting it to only those sites and services that your staff needs to complete their work.

The additional traffic coming in through your network is also a security risk. Your business network can become vulnerable to a number of intrusions by malicious actors in cyberspace. If you do not have a decent IT support Auckland firewall, your network can be bombarded by a ton of unwanted traffic that can be damaging to your systems and data. Having a properly configured firewall ensures that you are safe from untrusted networks that could potentially deliver malicious payloads containing viruses, malware and other threats.

Securing your network also means that you can keep your customers' data secure. Setting up selective access, which is what a firewall does, protects any personal or financial customer information that you are storing on your systems. Businesses are often the targets of attacks because of the sensitive data that they keep. Your firewall is essential in protecting your customers from facing identity theft, credit card fraud, and many other attacks.

The premium IT support SOHO Internet Guardian includes a firewall system that uses the latest technology in network security. This network firewall security system is independently certified by ICSA Labs, under the trusted name of the International Computer Security Association.
